Wrestling: Brewer is top finisher at 195 pounds

By The Staff

This week, the Los Alamos Hilltopper wrestling team was issued a challenge and it responded.
Los Alamos, coming off a lackluster performance a week ago, wanted to find its groove again and seemed to do so after two back-to-back solid efforts.
Saturday, taking with them mostly their less-experienced grapplers, the Hilltoppers picked up a sixth-place finish at the Pecos Invitational tournament.
Along the way the Hilltoppers came away with five medals, including a first-place finish by Peter Brewer.
Brewer took top honors at 195 pounds Saturday, his best finish so far this season.
Meanwhile, Clint Adams and Arnoldo Ortiz faced off for third-place in the 182-pound division, with Adams picking up the win. At 170 pounds, Mitchell Carson also grabbed a fourth-place finish.
“We’re pretty happy with Mitchell,” Hilltopper head coach Bob Geyer said. “He won the first two matches in his high school career. That was a big couple of wins for him.”
Last weekend, Los Alamos went 0-4 as a team at the Moriarty Duals, dropping a couple of contests the team felt it should’ve won. However, the Hilltoppers bounced back to win a pair of duals at home Wednesday.
